Mixed media on Japenese paper
I see the world is driven by greed and power as a major stream. Refugee crisis. Exploitation of both human rights and environment. Wars for money. Hungry ghosts are manifestation of rebirth of greedy lives. I drew it thinking/wishing the world major stream would shift towards much collective compassion and wisdom, which would give offerings ( like Tsok ) even to the hungry ghosts.
